I just got a great deal on a Toshiba P105-s9337 17". Core2Duo T7200, 2GB, 7900GS......etc. Everything looks great, but I seem to be having a problem with one of the fans. From the moment I hit the power button to the moment I shut down there is a fan (I can't really tell which fan) that will go to MAX RPMs for about 3-4 seconds and then stop, then MAX, then stop, on and on.... So, while I am using it I hear a constant WHIRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrRRRRrrrrrrr
It's really annoying and I really want to fix it because I love the rest of the machine, but this loud fan would be enough to return the thing. I read recently that I am not alone. It seems to also be a common problem (which Toshiba won't admit is a problem) with this series of notebook.
My question is, does anyone know of any fan controlling software that I could use to monitor and control the fan speed? I have already tried Rivatuner, Notebook Hardware Control, and SpeedFan with no luck. I couldn't find anything else so I thought I'd try here. Any ideas?
